New from Encore: Faction Executive and Task Collection Designed by 5d Studio

Encore’s New Faction Series is All About the Details

As Encore’s newest collection of executive and task seating, Faction is characterized by upscale design elements and discreet internal mechanisms that make it as supportive as it is stylish.

Product designers David Ritch and Mark Saffell of 5d Studio lent their creative expertise to envision a smart, versatile chair equally suited for executive offices, meeting rooms or workstations. Visually, Faction is distinguished by a sculpted, curvilinear back that blends seamlessly with the arms for a clean, refined look without the typical knobs and levers to distract the eye. Functionally, the collection’s weight-activated mechanism automatically adjusts to different body types and regulates the force needed to recline to provide continuous support, making it exceptionally user-friendly and incredibly comfortable. A synchro-tilt mechanism is also available on select models that allows users to recline while keeping their feet on the floor to encourage movement and readily adapt to varied seating positions.

Faction’s distinctive back is available in both mid- and high-back executive/conference styles and features upholstered stitch detailing that lends a hand-crafted feel. Its signature polished aluminum cantilever and loop arms integrate with the back to move simultaneously when reclining, while at the same time providing an elegant aesthetic. Task models are offered in similar mid-back iterations with adjustable t-arms in black or chrome trim to match base finish selections.

“We’re enthusiastic about this new series,” says Casey Journigan, Encore President. “Its minimalist design is the perfect counterbalance to the collection’s range of options that offer a tremendous amount of versatility, all while keeping the end user’s comfort in mind.”

With its meticulously tailored aesthetic and impressive lineup of options, Faction is a study in the interplay between form and function, and a welcome reminder that it’s all about the details.
